rarity of Myriostoma coliforme and I would like to thank all those who
gave me information: Philippe Clerck, Sigvard Svensson, Roy Halling, Rod
Tulloss, Vera Evenson, André De Kesel, Florence Nishida and Vladimir
Together with some information I could gather on the web, I obtained the
following picture:
